Set in a sparsely decorated kitchen, this intimate one-man show starring Jon Kenny, (D’Unbelievables), is a window into the soul of a lonely bachelor, Dan. A crow-hating man who noisily tries to shoo the blighted birds away, Dan measures out his life by the amount of funerals he has to attend every week. They are social occasions with the added bonus of refreshments.
Dan, who vacillates between high comedy by mimicking TV celebrity chefs; and pathetic admissions, including attending Mass just to connect with another human by shaking hands, is a master at distraction, But one day, hearing a death announcement on the radio, his world is shattered.
Kenny is brilliant in the role – The Irish Examiner
Dan is a man on a mission; to scatter, maim or kill every crow that has ever blighted his land and his life. However he gets distracted easily by flights of the imagination and memories of events from his past and a weekly schedule of funerals and masses he must attend, imagined conversations with his beloved sheepdog, and a stream of racing commentators, TV chefs and David Attenborough – all so that he can hear a voice that is not his own.
At times poignant and tragic, this play also has warmth and humour as Jon slips seamlessly in and out of the many uproariously funny characters.
